Onderdonk House Wedding | Brooklyn, NY | Dana and Darren

On September 7th, I had the pleasure of shooting Dana and Darren’s NYC wedding in Ridgewood, NY at the historic Vander Ende-Onderdonk House. It was a perfect September day and the day was so smooth. Dana was such an easy going bride and it was fun to capture her throughout the day.

The Vander Ende-Onderdonk House is the oldest Dutch Colonial stone house in New York City. Peter Stuyvesant granted the land it sits on in the mid-seventeenth century, and by 1660, Hendrick Barents Smidt occupied a small house on the site. In 1709, Paulus Vander Ende of Flatbush purchased the farm and began construction of the current house. The building was a prominent marker in the 1769 settlement of the boundary dispute between Bushwick in Kings County and Newtown in Queens County.

As you can see, full of historic charm! Dana got ready upstairs and there were so many gorgeous spots to shoot her dress and jewelry. We did a first look once she was all ready and check out Darren’s face when he sees her for the first time, absolutely adorable!

The ceremony was outside and we had the perfect blue sky for it. It was short and sweet and Dana and Darren’s vows were so beautiful!

Immediately following the ceremony was a cocktail hour and then we went straight to dinner. The food was fabulous and everything was so cute and low key. The Etsy cake topper they used with their names was such a perfect ending to the day.

Congratulations Dana and Darren! <3
